What a beautiful place Sennen House is. We stayed in the James Cook apartment and it was every bit as good as we had expected after looking at the photos on their website. The location is great. it is very quiet yet only a 10 minute walk from the harbour and breakfast on the peaceful, sunny verandah was exceedingly pleasant.... More

Excellent accommodation, clean, very comfortable with knowledgable hosts. I would highly recommend Senna House for short or longer stay. Rooms are very tastefully decorated, bed was most comfortable we slept in during out travels around New Zealand and the breakfast provisions in the room is a great way to start the day. Picton is an ideal base to visit the... More

A fantastic getaway for a weekend...or longer! The house, grounds and accommodation were immaculate but homely and very cozy. Helena and Lyall are fantastic hosts and have created an atmosphere for guests to retreat and unwind in luxurious privacy whilst making the most of Picton and the Marlborough Sounds. The accommodation is very comfortable and relaxed but individually decorated to... More

We spent a night at the Historic Sennen House in the lovely Sir Joseph Banks room. It's a wonderful getaway - a home away from home. The room is beautiful, spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. The location is great - just a walk to town. The owners Lyall and Helena are gracious, comforting and helpful. We arrived the day before... More

We really enjoyed our one night at Sennen House. Felt like home as they really did provide everything we could want; fresh eggs, fruit, whole grain bread, coffee all in a well equipped kitchen area. Had a really good night sleep! Sorry it was only the one night!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Sennen House for 3 nights in February, and what a delight it was! This colonial house is set within beautifully maintained grounds and gives a stunning first impression. Equally impressive was the interior of the house which had been lovingly restored to it's former glory. We stayed in the Queen Charlotte studio which was... More

We spent 5 nights in this beautiful house in Picton in February before leaving for the north island. We enjoyed our stay very much! We had an awesome apartment with a very nice bedroom and a very we'll equipped kitchen. The owners, Lyall and Helena, are very nice and helpful people. I would love to come back here anytime! Thanks... More

We stayed for two nights. The House has been beautifully restored and our room (James Cook Apartment) was spacious, comfortable and elegantly furnished, with access to a private balcony, shadowed on the bedroom side by a lovely beech tree. So tranquil and relaxing. Host Helena (Lyall was away during our stay) was friendly and obliging. She was good enough to... More

Certainly there are less expensive accommodations in Picton but you won't find anything close to the quality and comfort of Sennen House. Artfully decorated rooms in an immaculately restored vintage house. The hosts are warm and friendly, ever eager to help but careful to give their guests privacy. The house is a pleasant walk from downtown, and easy to access... More

Very comfortable. Very pleasant hosts. Not too far from town. Thoroughly recommended. Tripadvisor annoyingly needs 200 characters, so I'll save you from reading further. Blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah. Done.
